We stayed for 3 days in mid Nov 06 and loved it! The location was even better than we expected, many wonderful shops and restaurants & cafes w/in a very short walk, and it was not on a major busy street. We found the hotel to be very clean, nice & quiet, and the room to be very comfortable. The...

We stayed here for 5 nights with our 2 kids. Lonely Planet was right, this is an above avorage place. Nice very large rooms, very friendly staff and friendly for your budget. Darlinghurst is a very relaxed neighborhood with great restaurants. Would love to go back!

I live in London and have stayed at the Altamont on 3 separate occasions (Dec 05, June 06, Dec 06), twice whilst holidaying with my girlfriend and once when doing business in Australia. An excellent yet relatively quiet location in Darlinghurst means that numerous bars and restaurants are on your doorstep; the CBD can be reached on foot in 20...

Hotel Altamont, Darlinghurst Road, Sydney We had a very bad experience with this hotel. Even if we booked and payd a lot of nights in this hotel the manager behaved with us very rude and illoyal. So he promised to put us on the waiting list for the 31th of December and 1st of January and if he gets a...

An unfortunate miscommunication occured here. There was no New Year's Eve cancellation - the guys checking in on 31 December had booked and paid for a room in October 2006. They arrived from Melbourne with the Barmy Army and were in Sydney to watch the English Test Cricket which started on 01 January. It is indeed regrettable (and a tad...

Having just returned from a weekend in Sydney I can genuinely say that the Altamont is the best value for money hotel around. I have sampled various different types and locations of accomodation in Sydney and nothing beats it for price, style, proximity to everything and friendly service. The location, Darlinghurst, is an interesting part of Sydney with an ecclectic...

I wanted this to be as pretty, sexy, and easy as advertised, but the tobacco stains and dents in the wall should have let me know not to trust the website... Everything I saw online/in guidebooks (Time Out/Lonely Planet) made this place sound amazing...but for the money I paid for the vaunted "Loft Suite" I might have well flushed down...

A recent Sydney storm caused a leak in one of the 5 metre windows in the Loft Room which unfortunately resulted in the blind getting wet and stained. We are a non-smoking hotel and the blind is not stained with tobacco. (In the interim the Loft has had a soft refurbishment and the blind has been professionally steam cleaned). "...at...

After numerous stays in Sydney, we found the Altamont-What a blessing! The Altamont is positioned in chic Darlinghurst Rd, right in the thick of things. Only steps to Kings Cross and Oxford Street shopping, the area is abundant with cafes, bars and boutiques. The hotel offers great accommodation that leaves enough money in your wallet to enjoy the area. The...

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighborhood Profile
Darlinghurst
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
